Teal-inspired Christmas – Three ways with one simple die

Today I’ve got a trio of cards: three ways with one simple die and I’ve got a beautiful teal-inspired Christmas colour combination. This fun and whimsical ‘More Holiday Decorations’ die from Spellbinders can create stunning and elegant cards with ease by using a beautiful colour combination. And if you pair it will some sparkle and shine it will catch anybody’s eye! I’ve also shown you three ways to simply change the background with one die to get three different looks so effortlessly. So let’s get started!

three ways with one simple die

three ways with one simple die: dry embossed background

 For this first card, dry emboss a piece of Granite Hero Hues cardstock with the Diamond Stars 3D Embossing folder, trimming this down to foam mount onto a white card base. 

Die-cut the hanging lights garland from the ‘More Holiday Decorations’ die out of gold mirror cardstock twice and attach to the background at an angle, trimming off any overhang. Next, emboss 3 sheets of white card with 3 different colours of embossing powder – here I used glitter embossing powder for added effect and the powders I used were: Halo Embossing Glitter, Bee Kind Embossing Glitter and Sparkling Sand Embossing Glitter from WOW! Embossing powder. 

Die-cut the lights from the embossed card panels and layer up the two die-cut layers before adhering to the front of the card. Lastly, add a gold foiled sentiment from Mini Christmas Sentiments Strips Hot Foil Glimmer Plates in Matte Gold Hot Foil.

three ways with one simple die: heat embossed background

For this second card, stamp the Catherine Pooler Making Waves background stamp in embossing ink and cover it with white pearl embossing powder before heat setting. This shows you how to use a non-holiday design stamp with your holiday cards!

Trim the background panel down and foam mount onto a white card base for a tone on tone look. Next, add three gold hanging light garlands from the ‘More Holiday Decorations’ die to the front along with the heat embossed light bulbs, alternating the colours for interest.

Lastly, add a hot foiled sentiment to the front of the card. Here, I hot foiled the a sentiment from the Christmas Magic Glimmer Hot Foil Plate in Matte Gold Hot Foil onto Granite Hero Hues cardstock

three ways with one simple die: ink blended background

For this last card, I’ve kept it nice a simple. Using a large blending brush, ink blend Skylight Catherine Pooler ink onto a white card panel from one corner fading this out. With a small round paint brush, splatter on gold paint using the Metallic 14 Pan watercolour set from Altenew

Trim the panel down and add this to a white cardbase. Next, add a single strand of the light garland from the ‘More Holiday Decorations’ die across the ink blended corner and add the heat embossed lights over the top. 

Add another hot foiled sentiment from the Mini Christmas Sentiments Strips Hot Foil Glimmer Plates on Granite Hero Hues cardstock, foam mounting this off to one side. lastly, add a few clear jewels to embellish the card.
